I've seen this happen due to a couple of things:

1. An archive not being completely downloaded (check the file size in
Bytes matches that listed on the download site)

2. Windoze giving the downloaded file the wrong extension. This can get
particularly tricky when Windoze plays it's game of hiding file
extensions it thinks it knows about. Check the whole file extension
matches that from the download site (usually .tar.gz)



You are usign WinZip, aren't you?
